Is it ok to consume sperm?

Yes: Sperm is primarily made from protein with a little sugar and salt. It is not harmful when ingested, although their have been individual reports of some allergic type reaction. Some alternative medicine sites suggest health benefits, although these claims may be more humorous than serious in nature. Some diseases can also be shared with eating sperm.
